PREPARATORY NOTICE. Lu
The enterprise in which we now embark, and and
of which thi? paper is at once the connnene.etner t, wil
and a aample of the papera that are to follow, las wit
for its aim no leas a purpoae, than to impart in- for
struct ion, in tkfc general and detail, to the Officer tioi
and Agents of the American public, in respect both Ian
to their duties and their rights, and to make them, ?
and the people at large, acquainted with the organ- Tu
ization, decisions and action of the Executive departments
of their Government. There has hitherto
been no vehicle for the regular and proper
communication of information of this kind. The (
publication of the Laws and the issue of instrur
tions, more or less comprehensive. and at intervals yij.
more or less extended, have prJXed wholly inadequate,
in the absence of the copptruulfcn of thoie
Laws, as applied to particular cases, and of details T
and illustrations to make the regulations and in Li
(ructions intelligible. The valuable documents ing
annually reported to Congress,are too voluminous. Ma
and are printed in quantities too small for general fy ?
circulation; whilst the debates in Congress and cu'
the commentaries 01 tne press upon tneir proceed. ?< ^
ings, and the proceedings of the Executive branch
of the Government, besides turning mostly upon By
general principles, address themselves only to the
oarty ends, and to matters of national poiieyj by
These publications in their various forms are 0f
highly useful in themselves as far as they go, and *]
some of them indispensable; but there is much j lar)
that do not reach the hands of all, nor if they did,! pnj
do they furnish those rules, methods, and exam-1 ant
pies, for the despatch of the public business which , hig
can render the discharge of public duty either safe j inij
or easy, whether in respect to the incumbent him*- fori
self, or the department or bureau under which he ! ha]
acts. We shall make an honest effort to supply | tic
this vacuum, and to provide for these necessities. | the
If we succeed in rendering the functions of the I wj|
primary offices more uniform, methodicul, und ex 0f,
act, we shall make the administrative dutiesof the "]
departments more easy and effective, and thereby nu,
promote the real and substantial interests of the ene
country And this we expect to do, to some ex the
tent at least?apart from, and indepedently to at I
any party or personal interest or question what- ']
ever. |?v
It is known to mo3t of those to whom this pa Th
per will be Nent, that the Senior Editor was Audi Th
tor of the Post-Office Department until the month Th
of November last; with by far the larger portion Th
of both postmasters and contractors, lie has had
direct intercourse, in person or by letter. He en- Bl<
tered the department fourteen years since, and for /
min? vears nreviouslv. had been, first in the War n.-il
Department, ai:d subsequently in the Treasury. J,or
He has therefore had the best opportunities fot j,?C|
understanding the arrangements or business in ah the
the department*, and being acquainted with those fea,
who curry it on. Since his official connection with #/<,
me Government censed, he flatters himself lie liaa ?/,,
preserved the respect and regard of most of the and
present incumbents of the departments, and iH on Her!
becoming terms of intercourse and civility with wrj
them all. The Junior Editor hasbeen usssiduously pHI
engaged for several years, in studying, by per- Sta
aonal inquiry and examination, the practical and \e
daily routine and details of the Post-Office and
inner branches of the public business. It is with 0f,
this stock of experience, and these advantages for |ea,
reaching the various souroes of administrative ac prj,
tion, and for imparting minute and illustrative in B|a
struction, and valuable periodical and slatistica' (
information, that we challenge your confldeuct \ja
and solicit your support and patronage. ren.
We have fixed upon the 15th of each month as
the day for the publication of our paper, so as to
afford, time for Ahypning front the departments
all the orders, ^ tps and changes issued, or raadt *
by them durinj^B preceding month. Table* c I *
Post Offices, and compilations of the Laws and *
Regulations, are issued by the Post Office Depart- '
ment only once in two or three years. It is a f
matter of inconvenience and complaint, for which '
hitherto there has been no remedy, that m one *
month from the time of these issues, there are of- '
fire* in the tables which are no longer in operation, I
and offices in operation which are not in the table*;
At this time there are perhaps over three thousand /
offices of the two descriptions. In like manner pri<
laws have been passed and regulations established mo
since the issue of the last volume of regulations, wo
nf u l.u li msnv postmaster* and Mhersnr* wholly Re'
ignorant. We projiose to prevent, for the present, oft
any increase or the evil of. either kind, and from no i
the time another taaue ehall be made, our paper "
will furnish the additions, corrections, and m oJ.fi; puh
cations, made in each inonlh, and by being filed allc
and preserved, will afford to postmasters full and II
exact information upon both subjects, up to and be i
for time being. How much of the present misdi [
rection, remailing, doubt, conftiaiun, error, and alw
imposition, will be saved by the progressive slate Pul
of foil and exact knowledge, for which we hav*
provided, and for which we engage, every intelligent
postmaster ran estimate for himself.
These advantages alone and independently of all {
others, are worth many limes the price we charge Pr?
for the paper, and will, it is honed, induce every 8<x
postmaster who feels a just pride in his office or
a patriotic regard for the credit, prosperity, and
efficiency of the whole Post Office system?at once ,
to subscribe. The same considerations apply to Xf
the orders and notices, decisions, and inetrumore ,
of the War, Navy, Treaaury, State, and Intarior *.'

respect to them. Notices of the decisions of th? m*

Sir :-After consulting many p jrsons interested in
he principal Rail-Roads in the United States, the
indersigned propose to estabb' h agencies in this
ity and in New York, for th? purpose of collect- J11'
ng full and authentic Rail-load statistics and "?
imL other information as will sable them to serve Pe
ilRons desiring to invest in R lil-Road securities,
?r to procure information ofai y mattersconnected an
villi the construction and adnr inistration of Rail- sa
loads. They also propose especially, to urge lje
ipon Congress a modificatior of the laws relat- Ye
ng to contracts for carrying trie mail, so as to an- !0'
horize the Foat Office Depari nent to contract foi ll)
he perpetual use of Rail-Roids, and, instead ol Pe
laying, as now, quarterly or contracts for foui "a
tears, to advance in fivj pe- cent, bonds of the Wl
Jnited States, chargeable ujon the revenues of ,ie
he Post Office Deportment,n i amount, the inte
est upon which at 6 per ceip. .vould equal tl ; ly
myments now made. '
The government now pay* >300 per mile fcr
mi rying the mail on first class Kail-Roads. This jjf
s 6 per cent, on $5,001). The undersigned would ev
lrge that, instead of paying $300 a mile, per anlum,
the Department should deliver, on acontruct
i perpetuity,live $1,11110 bonds, bearing an inte Q(
eat of five per centum. At this rate the charge
ipon the Department would be reduced from $300 1
0 $250 a mile, per annum, and the $50 per mile
laved would create a sinking fund which will, in a
'ewv ears,pay offthe Bonds,and give the use of such
oatls forever thereafter, free of all charge ; there- ,u
iy effecting a vast saving on the present annual r
sxppnditures of the Po t Office Department, and P'
1 consequent reduction of the rates 6f postage.
The effect will be no less advantageous to Rail 01
Road Companies than to the government. For
instance, such a contract would give to the Balti- J*
nore and Ohio Rail-Road Company more than r

The adoption of Congress has given the Ci <

The great celerity with which the letter-wrii

apli their hurried accounts and views of
ibates of Congress, renders more important t
